This week we metal plated the trebuchet in order to add more torsion, and continuity tested the 25 pin moter controller data port in order to integrate a custom pcb for better wire management.

With this week rapping up, their was some high hopes for the Balista. Sadly these hopes were put to rest when we finally fired it a good 5 feet... So now we must take apart and re-design some key elements on the Balista so that we can try again soon.

This week we plan to continue with our respective projects, the trebuchet is built, and is now being tweaked for grater range. We are still waiting for the wire for the solar-car, but we plan to re-install the parts so as to expedite the process when the wire arrives.
